To Hit the Afternoon Bite | Excuse to Fish #10

Updated: Apr 23



You can't always get up on time and hit the water when you want.


Sometimes your phone dies and you can't set an alarm. Sometimes you're a little hungover. Sometimes you've been going through some things.


It's all good...I tell myself as I send this newsletter late in the day.


Mornings are the time to hit the water, but if an afternoon is all you get, so be it. Tie on a white or green pumpkinseed curlytail grub and fish it slow. You could also add a piece of split shot to your leader to get it down deeper.


Sometimes fish sleep in too.


Go find the lazy ones.



Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.


No excuses.
